I am an artist who has fallen in love with the light and colour in the world around us.

I seek to capture the soul and essence of a place and delight in the fine atmospheric subtleties of the English landscape and equally with the brilliance of light and the colours found in coastal areas at home and abroad. I have been inspired by the charming scenes found along the Cornish coastline and also more recently by my travels to the enchanting island of Menorca where the heat, light and high energy from the holiday makers have all contributed to my fascination in 'capturing the moment' in my beach scenes.

I paint in watercolour for its ability to produce beautiful luminous washes and more recently in oils and pastels which allow me to paint with great depth of colour.
I spend much of my time walking and observing the rhythms of the natural world and the essence of my paintings are inspired by my intense Love of Light and Colour.

I have been greatly influenced and blessed to have been taught in my early years to paint by the well loved and respected Yorkshire artist Ashley Jackson and to have attended master classes given by David Curtis who never fails to inspire me with his sheer brilliance of observation and skill. I am indebted to them both for sharing their hard earned knowledge.
